Leading by Serving Others
Servant Leaders are recognized at Clarendon.
Servant leaders lead by serving others and helping them be at their best. Anyone can lead by service at home, work, school or in the community. Servant leaders put the needs of others above their own, respect everyone, are a positive influence and are courteous.
This year Superintendant Mike Norrell continues a district wide program of Servant Leaders where one student from each grade level is chosen by the teachers to be the month's student leader. The concept of servant leaders is to recongnize students who are exhibiting service to their peers and to their teachers. It is also designed to encourage other students to be servant leaders, too.
"True leadership is rooted in the service of others. Because our school, community, nation, and world benefits from selfless behavior, we need to teach and encourage our students to think of others and learn that we all can accomplish many things, even great things, when we are inspired by a purpose beyond ourselves. Therefore, to promote this concept and build a servant culture, we want to recognize the generous and noble actions of our students." said Norrell.
